Yes, a large change in income as a result of a layoff is a circumstance that New York Family Court considers cause for a modification.
Whether you’re paying a percentage as child support or a fixed monthly payment in spousal maintenance following a divorce, losing your job can quickly wipe out your savings.
Even worse, if you fail to meet your support obligations, your former spouse may ask the court to intervene, which can take your situation from bad to worse very quickly.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we can help you keep the court and your former spouse informed, and work out terms that can keep you financially viable while you find new employment.
